These men are of the people. Others explore the forest, the quarry, he mine iescending to iminense depitis into lie howels of the earth, that they may extract the nantrials indispensible to the trades, the arts.

Who devo e themselves for the setnrity ofothers, that they may rest in the tranquil emplovti t of their firosides? Who are they, if not the children of the people? Some of them also, through a thousand olbstineles: impelled and -astained by ge nius, develope and perfect the arts, letters and the sciences, softening manners and civilizing nations; surroutiing them with t1t transcendent splendor which is called :lory, aid forming one of tie most fruitful -ources of the public pirosp)erity.

R. W. Grnas.-Sir:-Deeply inl pressed of the importance of the subject of Agriculture, and feeling it not only my dny, but the duty of every planter to glve the result of his experience, no matter how trivial in the community generally, is the only apology we can offer, for intruding upon the columns of our valuable paper. In cultivating our crop ofeorn the present year. we were driven from trecessity (a lago crop and much rain) to pursue some what.a different course to our usual cus tom: -we commenced by rinnin' round our-corn, when young; with what we call a bull tongue. following with a large com mon shovel, filling the furrow, and laping the dirt to the corn; thils completed the first plonghing, which left a ridge between the rows not ploughed, as a matter of course. The second plotghitig. and last for a part of our crop,wa-1 done with latge common shov els, we ploughed tle rows out and out, in consequence of a fine crop, both of weeds and grass which has nearly taken the corn; this was (lone when the ground was in fine order Some two or three weeks had elap sed, before we returned to the corn; by this time General Green had marcl.ed in hii forces, posted his sentinells, and took coin plete possession of the flId; we however watched his movements very closely, & ev ery opportunity we were preparing for bat tlie, notwithstanding we were very fearful, from the advantage he had taken of the ground that we would not be able to rout him and his forces,without the assistnuce of Gen, Frost; we however, after much preparation made an attact o Lt Monday morninig, thinking before Saturday night we would have gained a complete victory. but not withstanding we had a hot tiae for it; we fought hard, and for the first two or three dnys, we were in fite spirits, as there wer' many slain and wounded hut the ratn began to fail, and continued for two or three days, which seemed to have quite a ditlerent effect upon the minds of the two atrmies; we however renewed the attack, with our twisters in complete order, but by the time we got about halfover our field, we were attacked by a re-enforcement fron a adljac ent cotton field; orders were immediately given to repair to the spot. -as they had attacked the very centre and tmait support of our army: the orders were no sontier given than obeyed; we cottinued to operate successfully upon this part of the old Gen. army, until our crop was laid by. But enaotgh of this kitid of stuff. The fact I wish to communicate to Sou. iq that our crop of corn was plough-ed three times, with the exception of about half of a ltrge field. " hieh was onl'y phoughed twice; and what astonishes me more, 6. that the corn that was worked the leatt, is decidedly the best on the pllantation, and perhaps the finest grass pasture you every saw. Will some old experienced planter give us an essay on plantig and ploughing corn. and " hether there is atv uliTrence in the corn of a red or white silk. By so doig tthey will oblige a YOUNG PLANTER.
